I wish to know which is the best gaming OS. I currently have WinME *Shudder*. I'm looking for the best OS for my gaming purposes on this machine.

GA-7ZX VIA KT133 Chipset Motherboard
856 AMD Athlon
Geforce 2 MX 400
164 RAM, soon to be 512 SDRAM

IMHO, WinXP Pro is the one I'd recommend. If you're a stickler for the olden days, then go with 98SE.

Outside of that, I don't see much else.

Now Windows XP has matured nicely as far as driver support goes, I would recommend it.

Win2k or WinXP (or linux :) )are your only options since you will be upgrading to 512meg ram

non- NT kernel OSes have trouble addressing memory over the 256 range.

I've decided to simply build a new computer all together for when I have 512 DDR RAM. And thus, I'll be reformatting in a few days and using the RAM that I have for Win98, however, I might buy a 128 stick of SD RAM just for the hell of it.
